Oklahoma St. Coach Gundy Apologizes For Wearing OAN T-Shirt

Source: Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — One day after Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard lashed out at coach Mike Gundy on social media for wearing a T-shirt promoting a far-right news channel, Gundy apologized.

Hubbard, who is black, suggested Monday he may boycott the program after Gundy was photographed wearing a T-shirt promoting the One America News Network, a cable channel and website that has been critical of the Black Lives Matter movement and praised by President Donald Trump.

[...]

“Our players expressed their feelings as individuals and as team members. They helped me see, through their eyes, how the T-shirt affected their hearts,” Gundy said. “Once I learned how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me. I want to apologize to all members of our team, former players and their families for the pain and discomfort that has been caused over the last two days. Black lives matter to me. Our players matter to me.”

Gundy was seen in a photograph on Twitter wearing the shirt with the letters OAN. Hubbard responded and said: “I will not stand for this. This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE.”

Media Bias Fact Check on OAN:

Overall, we rate One America News Questionable based on far-right bias, lack of sourcing, promotion of conspiracy theories, and propaganda as well as numerous failed fact checks. OAN is not a credible news source.


The Daily Beast revealed in 2019:

Kristian Brunovich Rouz, originally from the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, has been living in San Diego, where OAN is based, since August 2017, reporting on U.S. politics for the 24-hour news channel. For all of that time, he’s been simultaneously writing for Sputnik, a Kremlin-owned news wire that played a role in Russia’s 2016 election-interference operation, according to an assessment by the U.S. intelligence community.

Media Matters reported in March:

On March 14 and 15, pro-Trump cable news network OAN aired a coronavirus special called Exposing China's Coronavirus: The Fears, The Lies and The Unknown. During that program, the network’s chief White House correspondent, Chanel Rion, suggested that the novel coronavirus responsible for the current pandemic may have originated in a North Carolina laboratory.

2. Gundy "didn't know" the networks stance on BLM??

Lmao, that's such BS it's laughable. He got called out and now he's back peddling so he doesn't lose his players.

5. Well, the coach and player appeared together to address it.

That's a start. If the player thinks a dialogue has been opened, I will respect that.

6. He should be fired.

OSU has looked the other way too many times with Gundy, and they're both negligent. I hope the Black members of the OSU sports teams boycott all sports until Gundy is gone. His "I didn't know" defense is reprehensible, not to mention a fucking lie. His racism is a well documented fact.

8. He Only Cares About One Thing

Black Mullets Matter

He's a tool and why would he have a t-shirt if he didn't know what they stood for? Where does one buy the t-shirt?
Cut back on the hair dye Gundy, it's affecting your brain.

9. Meanwhile the coach at the University I graduated from led his players in a protest

Wearing a BLM shirt. Guess who will get better recruits?

I was surprised to see it, frankly. Knowing Kentucky like I do. But he is from the North and his best friend is an African American man.

And Kentucky had the first African American player in the SEC. They went thru hell.

10. OANN is full on fringe propaganda BS exploiting US free society.

Lack of credibility needs frequent pointing out by credible sources with lots of laughter and ridicule.

12. OANN located in San Diego is on

Morena Blvd. just north of the Costco near the corner of Jutland Dr. and Morena Blvd
at 4757 Morena Blvd, San Diego, CA 92117

You can see their satellite dish farm just off of I-5.

They are a second rate network that is gaining traction.

Every time I pass it, I grin my teeth.
